HISTORY

The Iroquois Library’s origin lies in its neighborhood’s demand for public library service. An August 1938 fund drive, spearheaded by the Beechmont Civic Club, raised funds for construction and purchase of land for the Library. Donors purchased certificates of ownership, issued in units of square inches, for the project. The funds raised, when combined with the support of City officials and the resources of the Federal Works Progress Administration, led to the construction of the Library.

The neighborhood’s effort is actually part of the structure, with a copy of the check, redeeming the square inch purchases, having been placed in a box within the cornerstone, which was laid on March 1, 1939.

The Iroquois Library remains an anchor in its community, adapting over time and now serving as the hub of the Library system’s work with the International community, which began in earnest in 2003.

Our staff invites you to visit our branch and become a part of our community.
